For whomever wants to do an updated version of that North America map, here is a less cluttered key for the states of Former Mexico.
Field Marshal Ambrose Jansen--the son of a former Virginian commander in the Great American War--who now was Field Marshal of Army Group V, nicknamed the "Dixie Legions." He wanted to join up with Army Group VI, under Field Marshal Abraham Edelstein, the Russian-born Jewish former mayor of Metropolis, and strike out at South America through Gran Colombia and into the United Empire of Brazil and Rio de la Plata.

My gut also tells me that California will lose the far eastern half, but otherwise bleeds the Union into a stalemate.
Look at the map above. Bonapartist California is far bigger. It has half of Colorado/New Mexico, all of Utah, Arizona, Nevada, and California proper, plus Baja. The Kingdom can easily fortify the mountainous terrain, so I'm saying the Union only gets the eastern half of what's on the mapIn that case the RU might as well have fought for nothing. I'm not sure that there is space for a stalemate. Either the Yankees break into the Great Valley or they don't:
French Canada will fall, I believe, and there will be a fight over Gran Colombia. My gut tells me that the Union will take Quebec, though the French may hold out. My gut also tells me that California will lose the far eastern half, but otherwise bleeds the Union into a stalemate.

I actually think the Union can take all of Europan North America. Canada is predominantly Anglophone (and probably somewhat sympathetic to the Union) as well as sparsely populated. California can easily be cut off from outside help thanks to Union sea power in the Pacific. Quebec is probably also not too terribly populated outside of a few key urban centers. Add in the fact that the Union has far more experience with industrialized warfare, is not a dependency of a horrifically overextended empire thousands of miles away, and has a great deal of men and resources to throw at the issue and the conclusion I come up with is.... not pretty if you're a Europan. It sure as hell won't be easy, and if the Union decides to bite off more than it can chew their might be a chance for the French to keep parts of Cali, but barring that I'd recommend the non-Inferior locals start reading up on Prophet Burr and learn how to sing Yankee Doodle in the proper key.
some weird Anglo-Saxonification of the American dialect
This seems to be the biggest factor on the RU's side. Regardless of how horrific the battlefield or the terrain, the RU can keep throwing bodies at the problem until the enemy breaks or hold the line until Goodyear scientists can cook up another horror to unleash upon the world. The only way you can survive against the RU is drink the cool-aid, embrace the Madness, and become as scary militarised as them.Of course, casualties will still be high but the RU has the people and fanaticism to spare
I get the feeling that Ireland maybe be able to survive by the skin of its teeth if every single person plays a part in fighting.I'm eager to see what Ireland's reaction to the madness finally breaking loose. I imagine from their perspective, it's the start of the apocalypse. The Americans and later English have made their thoughts on the Irish people clear for a long time and the Kingdom harbours no illusions that the war with the Anglo's is about: Survival or utter extinction.
